Do not think a Russian woman will fall in love with you after 2 weeks. Please, do yourself a big favor and read this whole Antiscam mini guide, it can save you from a lot of emotional damage and financial problems. There are so many single beautiful women and so many Dating Agencies. But this still means that it could be possible to come across one of the 0.5%.
Ask specific questions and check if you receive answers on these questions In case you are using an Agency with email forwarding or other mail-services, and your correspondent is not responding on your specific personal questions, this could be a sign of being suspicious.
Another important thing is to confirm with her if your (original) letters indeed are reaching her.
For example, some web sites have over 20.000 profiles, however this is not a reason to find any scam inside this Agency, it only gives you an impression how many profiles you can find on the 'entire' web.
So, the chance is present, but if you prepare yourself in a proper way, the risk of being scammed can be reduced to almost zero.
